Cary Grant’s Former Palm Springs Haven Asks $13M

An elegant Palm Springs mansion where legendary actor Cary Grant frequently stayed is asking $13 million. The leading man never owned the home but he had a deep fondness for it, even naming it Villa Paradiso. Located in Old Las Palmas, the house is steeped in glamorous history and still goes by that name today.

Prescott T. Stevens, a key player in the development of Palm Springs, built the 15,000-square-foot house in 1925, according to Mansion Global. By 1928, the luxury property belonged to a Chicago heiress. 

Later, Las Vegas hotel owner, Charlie “Kewpie” Rich, bought the four-acre estate and immediately built a guest house for his close friend Cary Grant. Kewpie also added a pool, and soon the Palm Springs spread became Grant’s ultimate getaway from Hollywood’s hustle and bustle. With hundreds of palm trees, soaring cypress trees, and breathtaking mountain views, it’s easy to see why the actor became so attached.

The estate stands as one of the last old-world luxury properties in Palm Springs offering eight bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, three kitchens, and four massive living rooms across it’s multiple residences.

While the “walled and gated” private compound has been restored and updated to exist comfortably in the 21st century, its Moorish architecture and original 17-inch walls have been carefully preserved. 

Marc Lange and Carl Blea of Sotheby’s International Reality have the luxe listing.
